Since November, Bradford has been placing DUI and misdemeanor files from 1996 through 2008 into boxes to be sent off to HOV Services, based in Rantoul.
“They have to be closed files and the defendants can not be on supervision or probation,” Scott explained. “We have a tentative date of March 1 for HOV to come down here with a semi to pick up what we have ready to go.”
Scott estimated 100 boxes of files will cost approximately $20,000 to process and scan.
The nine employees of the Circuit Clerk’s office all have their own printers, and Scott said eventually he would like for all the employees to have their own scanners to update current cases.
